I hate performance appraisals. I agree with the article, it's too stressful and it's also time consuming. Every year, during performance appraisal time, everyone in the office basically freaks out. If I'm doing something wrong at any point, I'd rather have my boss talk to me about it so that I can fix it. I don't like that we basically wait for performance appraisal for all the reviewing to occur. And I definitely don't like to think that my job may be on the line year after year.
